The future of motor sport: what will be the Formula-1 in 2050?
Tesla and other car manufacturers are predicting the future with electric motors. Of course, the trend will also affect the racing cars - the British company McLaren described his vision of the championship of Formula 1 future. She believes that after a few decades, the competition will remain exciting only if they will be used artificial intelligence, a new kind of cars and drivers as well as special displays, showing their emotional state. The concept is called MCLExtreme.
The Company believes that Formula 1 cars can reach speeds of up to 500 km / h - by today's standards it is a fantastic figure. Electric motors do not require charging, as can be charged directly during the race in the pit lane area. The slower moving vehicle is, the more he will charge, but he runs the risk of being left behind. There is another option - the pilots will be able to "steal" the charge in front of cars traveling. Also in the future it will be possible to forget about the stops to replace the huge tires, because they will recover on their own.
Cockpit will be completely closed, because the drivers are unlikely to survive the ride at a speed of 500 km / h without special protection. McLaren representatives believe that the people for a long time should be allowed to look at any human factor - for example, on the emotions. Thus, it offers to connect external devices to recognize emotions and display them on the car with the help of color codes. For example, the pilot's anger can be shown in red, and peace of mind - green.
As in 2050, most vehicles will be autonomous racing car will be equipped with artificial intelligence. No, the company does not want to take away from the pilot control wheel, and aims to make their driving more interesting. In particular, it comes to assessing the environmental conditions, the position of the rider and his condition - the system will be able to develop a new strategy and show it on the holographic display.
, of course, change and track. They become more adaptable to extreme weather and will be surrounded by a transparent barrier that fans are to them as closely as possible. By the way, the audience may well give an augmented reality device, which will display all kinds of information about the race.
When thinking about future cars, there are some very interesting questions. If after a few years will become autonomous vehicles and people will not ride it yourself - whether it will be interesting to monitor the competition?
